Millions Won for Grieving & Bereaved Families Since 1968
When accidents cause the deaths of our loved ones, the impact is both permanent and deeply damaging. Studies show that widows and widowers experience a lifelong lowering of their overall happiness, even if they remarry. Children who lose a parent or a sibling are left with deep emotional scars. When a family loses its primary earner, their grief is compounded by sudden financial instability.
At Daniel Law Firm, our Memphis wrongful death attorneys hold companies and insurers accountable for the heartbreak left behind in a tragic and fatal accident. We help grieving families face the people who robbed them of a loved one while giving them the financial resources to face the future. In the end, our job is to give families the space to figure out a new reality—one without their spouse, their parent, their child, or their sibling.

Pain, Suffering & Punitive Damages
When a company or entity causes the death of an individual, they rarely face criminal charges. Corporations are structured so no one person will be held accountable for your loved one’s death. The only way to make the company take responsibility is to file a claim against them—that’s the only way you’ll force them to account for their actions.
Our Memphis wrongful death attorneys’ wrongful death results include:
- $9 million for the death of a driver in an 18-wheeler wreck
- $2 million for construction workers killed by a speeding driver
- $750,000 for a woman killed by medical negligence
- Multiple confidential settlements for people killed in explosions caused by car accidents
Wrongful death actions are unique in personal injury law because they are among the only cases that allow for punitive damages. Because the courts want to deincentivize companies from doing things that endanger people’s lives, they allow juries to issue enormous multipliers or additional damages solely to punish companies and keep them from making the same decisions.
